Self Esteem kicked off their sold out UK tour “I Tour This All The Time” in Nottingham and Dublin over the weekend.
The concerts, recently updated and extended due to demand, come in support of Rebecca Lucy Taylor’s Mercury Prize-nominated album ‘Priority Pleasure’ (2021) and are her main performances until now.
In Nottingham at Rock City on Friday night (February 24), Self Esteem performed new songs “Mother” and “Love Second” along with highlights from “Prioritise Pleasure” and their debut album “Compliments Please”.
It comes after the first two dates of the tour in Cambridge and Hull were postponed due to the singer coming down with the norovirus. Now they will take place on March 13 and 19, respectively.

The singer also released “Prioritise Pleasure (Deluxe))”, announced to mark the centenary of the album’s release, which included five bonus acoustic versions of the tracks with strings arranged by Colin Elliot.
Speaking to NME last year, Taylor discussed her upcoming album: “I’m always complaining about a lot of other things,” she said. It was just the beginning of the “Priority Place” crisis.
“You know how Ed Sheeran sings about loving his girlfriend? Someday I’ll be able to do that. Right now, I just have to fight injustice around every corner. It’s hard, but I’ll do it!”
